T'IE INDIAN EXCITEMENT.-At an in
e.rriew which we had last night with Judge Bar
Son, that gentleman informed us that in aoordance
v' ith the instructions of the Indian meeting at Dia
mond, he made all haste to Fort Shaw, arriving
:ere at 9 o'clock, day before esterdaly morniang
', sooner bhad be made his mission known to Col.
tudrews, commanding the poet, than that olmoer
1sued orders for twenty-five men to proceed im
rediately in pursuit of the savages. Within one
and half a hors after Judge Barree's arrival these
wen were on their way to the ford of the Missouri.
must used by the Indians, which lies mae the
mouth of the Dearborne, for the purpose of inter
cepting the retreat or following in pursuit of the
-avages. The war party believed to be concerond
u the depredations at Diamond was seen to cross
: ,e ford referred to four or five days ago. There
were twenty-five of them, all on foot, and members
.f the Blackfoot tribe-probably Bloods. Judge
Harroo is confident that he made better time from
I);amoud to the Fort than the Indians could possi
bly make to the ford, and therefore thinks it highly
Irobable that the soldiers may come upon them.
For his prompt action in the matter Col. Andrews
r deserving of the highest praise. Although
.,ampered by Government regulations and a pen
S'ty of men, he has done everything that could be
lone under the circumstances. Of the 203 men,
All told, under his command, 20 are sick, 20 in the
,.ard house, and d2 engaged in the constrauction
, buildings for the winter, barely enough being
rtt to stand guard. The winter's supplies for the
,pot are still protected from the weather only by
• nts, and it is, therefore, necessary to keep nearly
u l the available men constantly engaged in the
,.onstruction of houses. We mention this matter
cre, because many of our cititagas are in
ne habit of speaking disparagingly of
*,ir post commandene, when they are really rea
irred powerless by the small number of men al
owed them, and by the immense amount of unmil
•ary work that is forced upon what few they do
.ave. Judge Barron reports that everyone is on
he lookout for Indians on the Benton road. Night
uefore last a horse was stolen from Italian Joe'.,
Sw miles below Kennedy's, but came back with
:,n Indian lariat on him. At Diamond the excite
ment still continues. Night before last at about 4
S'clock. between tifly and sixty well armed mount

President of the St. Louis and Montana Mining
Company, and with a variety of other enviable
titles toe numerous to mentien, but all well de

happy in this connection to state this mill, in the
results which it is achieving, is no exception to the
rule which causes everything that Sam. honors

home, in Philadelphia, where he expresses his in
tention of remaining for goof. Mr `., through his
untiring energy, and a.sisted by years of experience
in milling and mining operations, is one of the few
who have succeeded in a quartz mill. From the
time that the first steam was raised he coatinned
to make big returns until the time of his dep arture.
We can hardly spare men of his calibre from this
Territory. but if any one deserves success as a re

that man is Mr. Sensenderfer. We wish that he,
like most moutaineers. may soon tire of the monot

TROL'BLES OF A TEUTON.-One of our
German tailors recently had occasion to write to a
firm in the States for a couple of smoothing irons.
and thus expressed Limself :
Send me two tailors gooses."
This did not strike harmoniously upon his ear
and he amended it as follows :
"Send me two tailors' geese."
But, as he repeated it over, the vibrations of his
tywpanum still failed to accoord with his ideas con

MADAME SCHELLER'S FIRST APPEAR
ANCE.-To-night this aecomplished and world re
nowned actrees will make her frst appearance in
Ilelena as "Marie," in the beautiful musical drama
of the "Pearl of Savoy, ' play which has resbeed
unbounded popularity in the Eastern cities and
which under the title of "La Grace de Dieu" sus
tained a run of over two hundred consecutive
eights in Paris. It is a play replete with most ef
fective and touching dramatic situations, abound
ing in serious and comie cha.ecteristles, re
sting beautitul gems of song and chorsses which
give it life and liveliness.
This play 1as been selected for the purpose of
giving the citizens of Helena an opportuaity of
enjoying the vocal aooomplishments of Madame
Scheller, ehich are of the highest order, and in
this Mr. Langrishe has shown that good taste which
has characterized his management through the
theatrical season. Can anything more effectively
win the heart to go oat in livrng kiadnese as the
touchingly sweet ballads of Alpine homes, breathed
in the rich pathos of our mother toegue. "Marie'
is one of those charming pathetic characters into
which an artiste canu throw all her soul and inten
sity dL feeling, and this is the great charm of Mad
ame Scheller's acting. There is n", attempting
with her; whatever she undertakes to represent
1 delineates with earnestness and a
seire and maturalness that Ls irreistlble.
Time will not permit us to say more, and we have
far too much faith in the intelligence and culture
ol our citizens to deem it necessary to remind
them of the rar opportunity now aoffrded of en
io) ing is their mountain homes the repetatioe of
one who has woo the hearts and approval of all
the metropolis of the East. The cast of the Pearl
of Savoy is very strong. Mr. Langrishe plays the
part of Pierrot ; Mr. Waldron, Lonstolat; Mrs.
langrishe the sprightly Choucho ; Mr. Brown,
Arthur; the other characters are all well distribu

an assortment being thereby obtaiened which is

with our community, has caused them to feel the
necessity for a large stock, and that they are war
ranted in making the immense purchase referred
to, by the demands which are constantly being

flowing the Helena Theatre to greet the irst ap

whose eminent qualities as an actrees have become
household knowledge in our mountain homes. If
the debutrete on this occasion be still sensible to
compliments, she must have experienced much
ratification at the manifestations of approval and
admiration that welcomed her first appearance anl

evening in demomstrations of delight. Called be

A life among these mountains has not deadened

;hat dictates it is correct. Such Madame Seheller
received. It is not our province to write upon last
Saturday's performance an elaborate critique, but
we ceanot forbear saying, as an evidence of the
ezeellenoo ol Madame Scheller as an actress. that
the play was one of a charaeter that brilliant

old story---a poor but pious lover-a titled persecu

and smiles, thrown together in a very domestic

proclniming the triumph of true bvre. The plot is
as simple as an Alpine maid. Like rich gems in
plain settings there were dramas,;, points in which
Madame $cheller shboe out in all the brilliancy
that talent, close study and complete comprehen
sion of the character could bestow. She was dra

a wonderful facial expression, a clear flexible
voice. combining the pathetic with the joyous-her
manner was petillaet and like the scintlations of a
diamood in a floodof light. Of her vocal qulil
ties we can.ot speak in too high tems, Her voice
is a clear. rich soprano, well modulated, with a
pathos fragrant of Fatherland, that won all hearts,
and breathed songs so sweetly they linger in melo
dious memories long after the sound is dead. All
her songs were gemsa but the feature of the even
ing was the ballad "Threagh Meadows Grese,"
which was one of the most exquisite Alpine melo
dies we have ever beard. We oongratlate] Madame
Scheller upon her success, and ourselves upon the
opportunity afforded us of witnessing the repre

C. P. Head's Indian hunters had reache6 a point
sixty miles distant, in a north easterly direction
from Diamond, on the mroning of the 1t,(h inbt. He

sent back by special messeneer and which he was
permitted to copy.
IN CAMr. August I., 1~(*.
J. R. W.-DEAR SIl :
Yours of the l:th inst., enclosing dispatches
from Judge Barron, at Fort Shaw. is received.
I am very happy to know that the soldiers have so
promptly respouded to oureall and hope that it will
prove an incentive to themt in future to more care
fully guard and protect the settlements. Their co
operation, however, is likely to be of little service
to us directly. as the Indians have. without doubt,
eromsed the Missouri river .,0 or 71 miles below
the point they (the soldiers) are guarding near the
Dearborn river. Il.oult they crues the river at
Dearborn and come down on this side, they will do
us the very greatest service. The Indians have
gone in the direction of Fort Benton altogether.
We are directly on their trail and pushing ahead
with the full intend of fllowing them to their
camp, be it where it may. if it be anywhere short
of the British I,Pssessions. We have fifty-five men
all told; all are well and any duty is performed
with the greatest obeerfullness and alacrity. We
have not made great progress from the tact that
we have had to march mostly by night and con
sumed the day in scouting and trailing. On yes
terday, however, we struck the main trait and will
push forward more rapidly. The last Indtian* are
not more than thirty-i:z hours ahead ,t us.
Yml r obrdient serv t

It is probable that the soldiers will cross the Mis
souri, at the Dearborn ford, as wished by Colo.e!
Head, and thus be able to unite their forces in pur
suit of the Indians.

A GOOD PAPElR.
One of the best newspapers pub
fished in the whole western country is
the Territorial Kitt rprise, of Virginia,
Nevada. It is just such a paper as we
like, aiading its own business, giving
its readers a large amount of mews, and
editorial matter of a quality that would
do credit to any journal. Since its first
establishment, before the discovery of
the (omnstock mine, is has pssed
through the uash and failing times, but
has met with such continued success
that it emterOd upao its seventeenth vol
nse as the let Inst., with a greater elr
culatle than any paper west of the
Rocky Mostais, outside of 1am Fran
dems, sae the Aermneass tUi . Such
a paper has alwa our best wishes.
THREATENED RE ELLION.
The Gazette of yesterday astonishes
the adjectives by the large draught it
makes upon them for the purpose of in
dignantly denying the assertion that
any revival of the rebellion is contem
plated by its party. Now we do not
deny that our cotemnporary is. in many
things, infortunately for its reputation
as a newspaper, a true representative of
the party whose cause it es ouses,. but
in this matter to which we refer we
must lo, k for higher authority. This
higher authority we find, first, in the
Democratic candidate for Vice President
himself. Frank 1'. Blair, in view of his
probable nomination by the New York
Convention, thought to securely en
throne himself in tho, affections of his
D)emocratic bretheren by writing them
a letter which should please them by a
strict conformity with what he knew to
be their secret desires. lie therefore
penned a production, filled with senti
ments of anarchy and revolution, the
principal points of which we give be
low. lie submits the following as what
1e considers the real and only issue in
The recon-truction policy of the Itadical,
will be complete before the next election;
the States -o long excluded will have been ad
mitted; negro suffrage ,-tabli-hed and the
carpet-baggers installed in their seats in both
branches of Congress. There is no possibility
of changing the political character of the
Senate, ,eveni if the Democrats -hould elect
their President and a majority of the popular
branch of Congres. We cannot, therefore,
undo the Radical plan of reconstruction by
Congre-sional action ; the Senate will contin
ue a bar to it- repeal. .Mu-t we submit to it?
How can it b*. overthrown ? It can only be
(overthrown by the authority of the Execu
tive, who is sworn to mna.ntain the Constitu
tion, and who will fall to do his duty if he
allows the Constitution to perish under a se
rios of Congresiouual enactments which are
in palpalle %nilation of it- fundnuental prin
If the Preidelnt elected by the Democracy
enforces or permit* other.- to enforce these
reconstruction acts, thl. Radicals by the ac
cession of twenty spuriou. Senators and fifty
Representatives will control both branches of
Congress, and his Administration will be as
powerless a- the present one of Mr. Johnson.
There is but one way to restore the Govern
ment and the Constitution, and that is for the
President elect to declare these acts null and
void, compel thearmy to undo its usurpation.
at the South, disperse the carpet-bag State
governments, allow the white people to reor
ganize their own governments, and elect Sen
ator. and Relpresentat.ves. 'The Hlouse of
Representatives will contain a majority of
Democrats from the North, and they will ad
mit the Representatives elected by the white
people of the South, and with the co-opera
tion of the President it will not be difficult
to 'ompel the Senate to submit once more to
the obligations of the Constitution.
*L a a * a
We mu-t restore the Constitution before we
can restore the financet, and to do this we
must have a President who will execute the
will of the people by trampling into dust the
usurpation of Congress, known a. the recon
Coming before the Convention with
these avowals upon his lili, Blair was
put in nomination for defeat by the Dem
ocratic iarty, his revolutionary senti
ments being thereby adopted by them
as their own. But n,t only the prom
ineut members of the Democratic party,
butits representative jouirnals have not
failed to pipe the notes of revolution.
The ('harleston 3,V ri ,ry, which, proba
bly, did more than any other paper to
bring about the first rebellion, thus an
nounces its I lan of revolution in the
event of thei election of Seyrmour and
Suppose, now,that the Democratic party car
ries the next Presidential election, and initalls
the President in the White House. Must they
not fort.with proceed to undo the wrong, and
restore the Constitution ? I- this impossible :
Why is it so? The Government of tht United
States used the army of the United States to
elevate the negro to supremacy over the white
man in violation of the Constitution. What
is there to prevent it being used to put the
Southern States beck to their original condi
tion, of the supremacy of the white man over
the negro, in vindication of the Constitution.
The white poptulation mean peaceably to
meet in convention, probably recommended
by the legislatures of their former State gov
ernments, and in such convention form a con
stitution for the government of the-e States.
We do not think that the negro govern
ments in the South will attempt by their own
power, to force their rule over the white
population. Supposing that this will be the
course of things, the white population will
proceed to form a consthution and elect
State officers and representatives to Congress.
this can be done by the fourth of March next.
Assuming that the House of Repre
seutatives will be under Democratic con
trol, the .Mt rc'ry# proceeds as follows :
The white men's representatives will be ad
mitted. In the Senate it will be different;
but a Democratic Executive will certainly re
gard the action of the House of Relresenta
tives as the controlling authority to deter
mine his duty. If, after this, any domestic
violence takes place in any of the Southern
States, he will recognize the white men's gov
ernment as entitled to his support by his in
tervention, if any is required.
And thus it will be seen that the great
idea of the Democratic party is to undo
all that has been accomplished for the
amelioration of the human race during
the years of bloodshed that have passed,
institute the rule ot chivalry at "he
South, take from the freedman all the
rights that he has obtained, and, in case
ot such "domestic violence" as negro
whipping, mobbing or murdering, to re
ceive the support of the Executive and
army at his o.ommand. Thus would the
schemes of rebellion be accomplished
and the South become victorious orver
